Inspiring Image(s) #73: Smile…please?

Okay, this will be the last time I mention that trip to Memphis, TN. One thing I learned is many people really don’t like how they look in pictures. I mean some Memphians were angered that I would even ask…until they posed and I showed them how beautiful they looked when they spread their mouths a little bit. Here are a few examples:

This one is called, “Just let me take the picture, so I can show you…”

This is called, “Is this how you wanted your picture to look?” (He really surprised me).

This is called, “Best friends since kindergarten.”

street_photo6

This is called, “Beale Street after 5AM.”

  1. What a cool place to take pictures and the people are so unique but they don’t see it. But you drew them out. Maybe we all hide ourselves a bit because of some deep perception of how we look.

  2. Already said this on Twitter but here I go again….This post just brings huge smiles bordering on the verge of laughter when I look at these beautiful images you have captured. Was your initial idea to capture them this way!

    1. Well, my initial idea was just to get them to pose for a picture for me, especially because everyone was so against it at first lol Turns out, they liked the pics and they’ve inspired more smiles!
